Description

This is a continuation of application Ser. No. 310,031 filed Nov. 28, 1972, now abandoned.

The present invention relates to new piperidine derivatives, and in particular to new piperidine derivatives substituted at the 1- and 4- positions and having value as stabilisers for polymeric materials.

In German Patent Specification No. 1,929,928 there are described compounds having the general formula: ##STR1## wherein R1 ' and R2 ' are the same or different and each is an alkyl group, or, together with the carbon atom to which they are bound, they form a saturated alicyclic group or a group having the formula: ##STR2## n' is a whole number from 1 to 3 inclusive; and when n' is 1, .[.R3 .]. .Iadd.R3 '.Iaddend. is an acyl group derived from an aliphatic, alicyclic or heterocyclic mono-carboxylic acid, an N-substituted carbamoyl group derived from an N-substituted carbamic acid, an N-substituted thiocarbamoyl group derived from an N-substituted thiocarbamic acid, a monovalent group obtained by removing an hydroxyl group from an oxo-acid, an alkyl group, a cycloalkyl group, an aralkyl group, an aryl group or a group having the formula: ##STR3## wherein R1 ' and R2 ' have their previous significance; when n' is 2, R2 is a diacyl group derived from an aliphatic, alicyclic, aromatic or heterocyclic dicarboxylic acid, a dicarbamoyl group derived from a dicarbamic acid, a bis-thiocarbamoyl group derived from a bis-thiocarbamic acid, a carbonyl group, a divalent group obtained by removing two hydroxyl groups from an oxo-acid, an alkylene group, an arylene group, or an arylenedialkylene group; and when n' is 3, .[.R3 .]. .Iadd.R3 '.Iaddend. is a triacyl group, derived from an aliphatic, alicyclic, aromatic or heterocyclic tricarboxylic acid, a tricarbamoyl group derived from tricarbamic acid, a tris-thiocarbamoyl group derived from a tris-thiocarbamic acid, a trivalent group obtained by removing three hydroxyl groups from an oxo-acid, an alkanetriyl group, arenetriyl group or an arenetriyl trialkylene group.

wherein R3 and n have their previous significance and hal represents a halogen atom, preferably a chlorine atom.

Suitable acid binding agents are organic bases such as triethylamine; alternatively, an excess amount of the amine V can serve as the acid binding agent.

The reaction is conveniently carried out by heating the reactants together in a solvent such as cyclohexane, benzene or toluene which is inert under the reaction conditions. When the reaction is complete, the desired product is then separated by conventional techniques.

For instance, compound X may be an alkylating, alkenylating or aralkylating agent such as the halides of these groups. Compound X may also be the aldehyde or ketone corresponding to the substituent R1, so that, when reacted with a compound of formula IX under Leuckart, Wallach or Eschweilar-Charles reaction conditions, compounds of formula I in which R1 is methyl may be produced by reacting a compound of formula IX with formic acid and formaldehyde.

The starting-materials of formulae V, VI, VII, VIII, IX and X used in the process of this invention can all be produced by methods well-known per se. The compounds of formula V are described in our copending British Patent Application No. (Case 32/72) and those of formula IX are described generally in German Patent Specification No. 1,929,928.

The group R2 may be introduced by reacting a ketone of the formula: ##STR72## wherein R1 1 is hydrogen R1, with a Grignard reagent R2 MgX followed by hydrolysis to produce a compound of the formula: ##STR73##

All the reactions described above which result in the elimination of hydrogen halide between two reactants may be carried out in the presence of an acid acceptor.

The present invention still further provides a composition comprising an organic material and a stabilising amount of a compound having the formula I, II or IV as hereinbefore defined.

Compounds of formula I, II exceptionally IV, have been found to impart to polyolefines an exeptionally high degree of stability towards deterioration normally induced by the effects of ultra-violet radiation or exposure to heat. Moreover, this improved stability is achieved without affecting the colour properties of the treated polyolefine. The stabilisers of the invention provide effective light and/or heat stabilisation, especially for low- and high-density polyethylene and polypropylene and polystyrene as well as polymers of butene-1, pentene-1, 3-methyl-butene-1, hexane-1, 4-methylpentene-1, 4-methylhexene-1 and 4,4-dimethylpentene-1, and also co- and ter-polymers of olefines, particularly of ethylene or propylene.

Other organic materials susceptible to degradiation by the effects of light and the properties of which are improved by the incorporation therein of a compound of formula I, II or IV, include natural and synthetic polymeric materials, for instance natural and synthetic rubbers, the latter including, for example, homo-, co- and ter-polymers of acrylonitrile, butadiene and styrene.

Specific synthetic polymers include polyvinyl chloride, polyvinylidene chloride and vinyl chloride co-polymers polyvinyl acetate as well as condensation polymers derived from ether, ester (derived from carboxylic sulphonic or carbonic acids), amide or urethane groupings. These polymers can, for instance, form the basis of surface coating media such as paints and lacquers having an oil or resin, for instance an alkyd or polyamide resin base.

The amount of the compound of formula I, II or IV, which is incorporated into the organic material in order to achieve maximal protection against degradation by light varies according to the properties of the organic material treated and according to the severity of the light radiation and to the length of exposure. However, for most purposes it is sufficient to use an amount of the compound of formula I, II or IV, within the range of from 0.01% to 5% by weight, more preferably within the range of from 0.1% to 2% by weight based on the weight of untreated organic material.

The compounds may be incorporated into the polymeric material by any of the known techniques for compounding additives with a polymer. For example, the compound and the polymer may be compounded in an internal mixer. Alternatively, the compound may be added as a solution or slurry in a suitable solvent or dispersant, for instance an inert organic solvent such as methanol, ethanol or acetone to powdered polymer and the whole mixed intimately in a mixer, and the solvent subsequently removed. As a further alternative the compound may be added to the polymer during the preparation of the latter, for instance at the latex stage of polymer production, to provide pre-stabilised polymer material.

Optionally, the composition of the invention may contain one or more further additives, especially those used in polymer formulations, such as antioxidants of the phenol or amine type, U.V. absorbers and light protectants, phosphite stabilisers, peroxide decomposers, polyamide stabilisers, basic co-stabilisers, polyvinyl chloride stabilisers, nucleation agents, plasticizers, lubricants, emulsifiers, anti-static agents, flame-protectants, pigments, carbon black, asbestos, glass fibres, kaolin and talc.

The present invention therefore includes binary, tertiary and multi-component compositions containing the stabiliser of formula I, II or IV, together with one or more functional additives for polymers.

Examples of suitable antioxidants are those of the hindered phenol type such as those selected from the following groups: 1. Phenolic compounds having the general formula

EXAMPLES 94-116 Testing in polypropylene film

38 parts of polypropylene were homogenised with 0.076 parts of n-octadecyl-β(4'-hydroxy-3',5'-t-butylphenyl) propionate in a kneading machine over a period of 3 minutes at 200 C. 0.19 parts of the product of Example 13 was then added and homogenisation continued for another 7 minutes.

This composition was compression moulded into films of 0.1 mm thickness at 260 C. for 6 minutes and the films so obtained were then quenched in cold water.

A section measuring 44100 mm was separated from the 0.1 mm annealed polypropylene foil and exposed to light irradiation in a fademeter device consisting of a circular bank of 28 alternate sunlight and blacklight lamps. The sunlight lamps were 2 feet long, 20-watt fluorescent lamps characterised by a peak emission of 3,100 Angstrom units; the blacklight lamps were 2 feet long, 20-watt ultraviolet lamps characterised by a peak emission of 3,500 Angstrom units. The sample was rotated concentrically about the bank of lamps so that the radiation therefrom was uniformly distributed over the section under test.

The exposed sample was examined periodically and portions of it tested for the percent/elongation at break, the time at which the sample reached 50% of the initial elongation at break was noted.

Similar tests were carried out on polypropylene samples containing, respectively, no stabiliser and known stabilisers, and also stabilisers falling within the scope of German Patent Specification No. 1,929,928. The results obtained are set out in the following table:

The final thickness of the film was 80-100μ.

The dried film samples were removed from the glass plate, mounted on white cardboard and exposed in a "Xenotest 450" exposure unit, one half of the exposed sample being covered to facilitate subsequent visual estimation of yellowing due to exposure. The sample was controlled and rated visually at intervals of 100 hours.

The data obtained are set out in the following Table which also includes data relating to a control experiment (no added light stabiliser) and to other experiments using stabilisers of this invention.

1000 Parts by weight of unstabilised polypropylene powder were thoroughly dry-blended with 1 part by weight of n-octadecyl-β-(4'-hydroxy-3',5'-di-t-butylphenyl) propionate and 2 parts by weight of 1,2,2,6,6-pentamethyl-4-piperidinyl-(3',5'-di-t-butyl-4'-hydroxy) benzoate. The dry-blend was extruded at cylinder temperatures of from 180 to 220 C., and the resulting strand was granulated. The stabilised formulation so obtained was melt-spun and stretched under the following conditions:

The multifilament obtained was mounted on a sample holder of Xenotest 150 apparatus (Quarzlampen GmbH) using white cardboard as backing. In intervals of 200 hours of exposure time, 5 fiber samples are measured for their retained tensile strength. The data obtained are plotted against exposure time and the exposure time (T) to give 50% loss or original tensile strength is derived from graph. This value is taken as the failure time.

The procedure described in Examples 94 to 116 was repeated except that the annealed polypropylene specimens were exposed to light irradiation in a Xenotest 450 exposure unit rather than in the fademeter device.

The result obtained are summarised in the following Table which also includes data relating to a control experiment (no added light stabiliser) and a comparative experiment (a known light stabiliser added).

EXAMPLES 145-150

100 Parts by weight of polyamide-6 pellets containing 1.8 parts by weight of TiO2 were dry-blended with 0.5 part of 4-benzyloxy-1,2,2,6,6-pentamethyl piperidine. The resulting mixture was melt-spun directly into monofilaments of 20 denier. The monofilaments were mounted on white cardboard without tension and were exposed to light radiation in a Xenotest 450 exposure unit.

After 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2000 hours of exposure time respectively, 5 fiber samples of each formulation and time interval were tested for tensile strength. The arithmetic mean percentage values of residual tensile strength were plotted as a function of exposure time. The failure points - time to 50% loss of original tensile strength--were obtained from these graphs.
